2. Naturi Naughton of 3LW
Naturi was forced out of the girl group just weeks before the release of their second album. She cited problems with manager Michelle Williams, mother of fellow group member Kiely, as the main reason for her departure.
“My opinion might have challenged the amount of control Michelle Williams had. Whenever any member of 3LW, not just me, challenged her, they were bound to get in trouble,” the singer said in a 202 interview with MTV. “I remember conversations where Adrienne said, ‘Don’t say anything. I’m not saying anything. I’m not getting kicked out of the group.’ And when I heard that, I’m like, ‘Aren’t we supposed to be in this to make the fans happy, to make records, to sing, to dance?’ That’s why I’m here. Why is it that we’re trying to impress management if we’re selling records.”
